Chippenham based renewable electricity company Good Energy has announced it is to cut both gas and electricity prices for its customers with effect from mid-April.
Good Energy will lower its gas price by an average of 3.2% and has also taken the step of lowering its electricity price by 2.1% for the average household customer.
The price drop will take effect from April 15 and will apply to most new and existing customers. For the average dual fuel user, this means a saving of £33 off their annual bill – beating the £28 average saving that the ‘Big Six’ are offering through their gas-only price reductions.
The independent energy supplier, renowned for its consistently high rankings in customer satisfaction surveys, gets all of its electricity from renewable sources
It offers the cheapest tariff of all 100% renewable electricity companies, £23 lower than the price of Ecotricity’s average dual fuel tariff.
Good Energy founder and Chief Executive Juliet Davenport said: “The idea behind dropping our electricity price and not just gas is to make sure as many customers as possible can benefit. It’s not just a token gesture.
Good Energy has a good track record of keeping our prices stable for our customers; in fact this decrease will mean our average price is the cheapest it has been for over 2 years. Our aim is to make renewable electricity an affordable choice for as many people as possible.”
Good Energy’s dual fuel tariff is cheaper on average than the standard tariffs sold by the ‘Big Six’ before discounts.
The firm is a favourite for people in search of good customer service, having topped the Which? energy company customer satisfaction survey 3 times in the last 4 years and was voted top of the latest MoneySavingExpert.com customer service poll for energy suppliers.
